After downloading auto detect software, and running it and the downloaders/installers that follow, the image on the screen decreases in size to a couple inches, aero is disabled, and Catalyst Control Panel disappears, being replaced by AMD Vision Control Center, which reports that no graphics card driver is installed. In the device manager, one of the cards has "Reported problems and has been stopped" while the other card is not recognized by the system, but Device manager reports that it is okay. Upon updating one of the drivers from device manager, most of the symptoms disappear, however, Vision Control Center still doesn't recognize the card, but the card is somehow still in use.

The computer overheats a lot, a two tone beep from high to low is heard from time to time, followed by a click. System performance began to degrade a few months ago, and that's why I tried to upgrade the driver today.
